These homemade flour tortillas are so easy to make and taste so much better than store-bought! Freshly made soft and warm Mexican flour tortillas taste amazing!
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup water
  1. Put flour and salt in a large bowl and mix. Add oil and water and stir with a spoon until combined. Continue kneading with your hands until the mixture turns into a smooth dough ball.
  2. Divide the dough ball into 10 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball.
  3. Put the balls of dough back into a bowl and cover with a damp paper towel so they don't dry out.
  4. Spray a non-stick frying pan with a cooking spray and preheat it over medium heat.
  5. With a rolling pin, roll out one dough ball at a time on a floured surface, making it as thin as possible and round.
  6. Put the tortilla on the frying pan and cook for 1 minute, or until the bottom is golden-brown. Flip with a spatula and cook on the other side for 1 minute. (While the tortilla is cooking, roll out the next ball of dough).
  7. Put cooked tortillas on a plate and cover them with a towel to keep them from drying out.
